"Looks like we've got another mystery on our hands": Fred Jones
On Saturday morning, September 13, 1969, Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! premiered. Fraidy dog Scooby-Doo (or Scoobert, his formal name) was joined by a team of four teenagers: confident leader Fred, accident-prone Daphne, bookish Velma, and hungry-hungry slacker Shaggy. The five crime-solvers formed the team of Mystery, Inc. Visiting haunted houses, ghost towns, and abandoned amusement parks, the teens investigated sightings of witches, ghosts, and even monsters.
Scooby-Doo has the distinction of being the longest-running cartoon on television. The mystery-solving Great Dane has starred in 310 animated episodes of shows ranging from Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! to Scooby's All-Star Laff-A-Lympics to The Scooby and Scrappy-Doo Show. But Scooby-Doo has another important distinction. Since his name comes from the refrain "Scooby-dooby-doo" from the song "Strangers in the Night," Scooby-Doo is also the only cartoon canine inspired by a Frank Sinatra lyric!
